Thank you Google – Google Sync for Outlook

Google today announced a plug-in that will allow outlook to sync with Google Apps Premiere.

For the last couple of months I have been working on migrating an organization with a number of users to Google Apps, but the sticking points have been with Outlook and the way people are SO comfortable with it as well as the time it would take. This plug-in looks to make it seamless for a number of reasons:

When this plug-in appears I will do a number of tests with some pilot users. First, I will have the plug-in installed and see how long this sync takes and if I start seeing some improvements on the exchange server (from the standpoint of response and total storage). Moving forward this seems to be the best solution to move our reliance from Microsoft’s Outlook right on over to Google.

Thanks guys!
